I'm Better Than You

"Diversity" suggests that differences are just that. I'm not 'better' (qualitatively) than another person just because I have different preferences, abilities, or physical characteristics. But this does not apply to politics. A person who eschews, or actively fights against theft, or kidnapping, or violence is actually a BETTER person. It may not be politically correct, of course, in a land that prides itself on equality, but we need to be realistic.

In this article, Larken Rose makes the case for qualitative inequality - not that it should exist, but that it does. He then challenges the reader to ask a statist you know why he feels okay about advocating that YOU be forcibly robbed every year to pay for things you don't support. And see if he can look you in the eye when/if he answers.

Also included is a link to one of Claire Wolfe's classics: 101 Things To Do 'Til the Revolution.
